Director Ron Howard dishes on the upcoming Han Solo 'Star Wars' prequel

Filming on “Solo: A Star Wars Story” ended last month.

The movie, which is currently in post-production, is expected to hit theaters in May.

"Those are challenging projects. And they take they take, you know, a lot of very talented people’s energy to try to live up to the legacy of 'Star Wars' and everything that it means," he said. "Of course, no spoilers coming from me but I had a great experience and I think fans are going to really enjoy it."

"He’s quite a guy and very disappointed that he can’t be here himself so we decided to come out in force and say what he would’ve said if he could be here," Ron Howard told ABC News of his father. "He loved making the movie. He believes in what [the film] said: It’s a subject that has touched our family -- Alzheimer’s. ... [and] could be applied to anyone’s life."

Added Bryce Dallas Howard: "We’ve experienced what an organization like Alzheimer's Greater Los Angeles can do for a family ... so to get to give back in even in a smallest way is meaningful."
